US$ 54.50

Temporality surveys the ways in which languages of different types refer to past, present, and future events, through an in-depth examination of four major language types: tense-based English, tense-aspect-based Polish, aspect-based Chinese, and mood-based Kalaallisut.

  • Cutting-edge research on directly compositional dynamic semantics of languages with and without grammatical tense
  • New in-depth analysis of temporal, aspectual, modal, as well as nominal discourse reference
  • Presents a novel logical language for representing linguistic meaning (Update with Centering)
  • Develops a unified theory of tense, aspect, mood, and person as different types of ‘grammatical centering systems’
